New Years Resoulutions!

So I hope everyone had a great Christmas. I sure did with lots of family on both sides and Santa was good to us this year. We got lots of good gifts and it was a nice enjoyable time. We got a awesome new grill which will be very nice this summer. We also got a new camera and the husband got me an Ipod Touch which ROCKS! Now that the holidays are over its back to the grind. I start working 2 jobs Jan 2 which means every weekend will be booked but the extra money will be nice. It will be an extra 200 a month for me which will help a lot. I will work nights at my main job and 2pm to 10pm on the opposite weekends. It will suck flipping schedules but I will handle it for awhile for the money and to get stocked back up. Husband will have all credit card paid off next month so we should be set to buy a house early 2010! I am excited for that process as well as nervous. I am ready to move though we have out grown this place and its time to move. It has been good for us the last 6 years but it’s time for an upgrade.
This new year we have a few goals as a couple and I have a few of my own. The first goal is to stop chewing my nails. If anyone knows me I have done this for years! This will be very hard but I will try my best. Second is to start working out with the husband. We are going to renew our YMCA membership to achieve that goal. And 3rd is to Buy a House =) Lets hope all our goals happen and by next year we will have a new set of goals. Well that is all for now enjoy the holidays and Stay safe =)

So here I sit Tomorrow is a big day. I have a meeting with my old job to discuss my position and back pay. I'm nervous about what they will say. I know they are offering me a position 2nd shift part time but what I don't know is what position that is. I go in at 930 and I really don't know what to expect. I am hoping for the best. I want to work 2 jobs to make extra money. That would be nice. I am ready to move on from this ordeal and to have it behind me. My new job is going GREAT. I have trained 3 days so far and I love it. I cant wait till I learn everything and get settled in on my own. Everyone has been nice so far and I like the residents too. I work the next 3 nights and then I am off Christmas eve and Christmas day. I hope everyone is ready for the holidays and I hope that you are getting a chance to enjoy family. I know I will enjoy my time =) Merry Christmas to you and your family be safe and have fun. Will update after my meeting tomorrow =)

“The best way to appreciate your job is to imagine yourself without one.”

Great is the best word to describe it. The person training me was very nice, the building was clean, the nurses were nice and the residents were nice. I was stressed when first going to work never knowing who you will get and what their attitude would be but the person I got had 25 years experience was very good. I learned a lot and walked out being tired but it was a great experience. I like a lot of the policies they have there and how they do things. No more going out back to throw trash out, a break room that's clean, report rooms you name it they are employee friendly. I think this is one job I can say I will be sticking with. I could not believe the difference. I was kind of shell shocked on how well it went and I cant wait for tonight to work again. So there you have it I am VERY HAPPY WITH MY NEW JOB!

The Future

"We can’t change the cards we are dealt, just how we play the hand. If I’m not as depressed as you think I should be, I’m sorry to disappoint you." Randy Pausch

"Losers live in the past. Winners learn from the past and enjoy working in the present toward the future.”

Begins tomorrow! Tomorrow night I will get in my uniform, put my sparkly new white shoes, put a smile on my face and head into work looking at the future. I will hold my head high and be confident in what is to come and take everything they teach me and keep it with me. I will show them I can and want to work and I will make sure they know I care about my job. I have a huge task in front of me but you know what what would life be without a challenge. Today I am watching football, laying around, went grocery shopping and ate pizza with the husband and tomorrow night I will be at work making a pay check. I cant wait for my first check and to finally see what a difference a change can make. This is not how I expected a change to happen but you know what that is fine. It happened for a reason and I hope that reason is a brighter future. Here is too the future and what it holds!

Orientation Review

"To me, there are three things we all should do every day. We should do this every day of our lives. Number one is laugh. You should laugh every day. Number two is think. You should spend some time in thought. And number three is, you should have your emotions moved to tears, could be happiness or joy. But think about it. If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day. You do that seven days a week, you're going to have something special."

It was a good one overall. It was short and too the point and everyone was very nice. It was also organized which is also a plus. I am looking forward to starting on Monday. I cant wait to meet new people and have a new experience. I got my schedule and its everything I want. No Thursday's, Same weekend as husband, 7 day a pay period it ROCKS! I love alot about the place already and have not even worked a day there. I will be floating so will be trained on 3 units which will be nice to learn just stressful in a way. Though really I am looking forward to the challenge. I cant wait to have this experience. You know as they say when a door gets closed just open a window. I have plenty of reasons to want to start over and come Monday it will be my chance!

What is life? I mean really everyone says they want to live and be happy but what is that. We always seem to have things causing us to be brought down. Everyone one time or another find them self asking this question. No matter how hard you try to stay happy it does not always happen. We strive our whole life for happiness and to be wanted and then its crushed. I am happy in many aspects of my life and others I wish I could change. I have tried to change my thinking and have hoped that happiness would come at some point and it has sometimes. My husband and me are happy and we live comfortable but by no means are we living like we are rich or anything. He strives to keep me happy and try to keep him happy. We have a simple life in a small apartment with our animals and no kids and we are happy. We want a house and hopefully that dream will come true next year but for now we are OK with what we have. We never take for granted what we have for one second. If we did where would we end up. I hope everyone is happy in life even if it comes and go to experience it is great. I am not always happy but I hope one day I will be and that's what matters that at some point we get there. Are you happy in life? Do you live life like it could be your last day on earth? Sometimes I wish I did but hey now is a good time to change right?

I miss it. I have been off now for a couple weeks and I miss it. I cant wait to get back and start working again. I did this for 2 years while going to school but its very boring. There is nothing to do, I sleep more than I care too and I just plain dont like it. I should be working within the next week but still I am BORED. Christmas is in full swing and I just dont have the money to enjoy it right now. We will finish our shopping next week and spend christmas at my moms on christmas eve and his parents christmas morning. I always enjoy the holidays just this year its not the same. I also miss my friends from work the ones I can trust and count on most of which I still speak with. For now I sit her bored trying to figure out what to do with my time. Any Suggestions?

Growing Up in the Sports World

If you are like me you love football. I love football to the point when its on I don't move all day. Personally I love all sports when they are on but the football season is the best. I grew up watching football and playing sports. I was more of a tom boy you could say playing little league, basketball and softball. My husband on the other hand was in swim. I never got into swim though he said he really enjoyed it I found my happiness out with the boys or girls in the more physical sports. I miss those days and love to watch kids playing these sports. Personally I should of continued in HS but I lazy and became more a kid that went to school and came home. I didn't have many friends and to this day I really don't have that many. My husband has lots of friends but me not so much.

Why may you ask I don't really know. I guess you could say I was more a person who don't trust people very easy so its hard for people to see my true side. Once you know me you know I am loyal and trustworthy. You can count on me for anything but it takes awhile for me to trust you and allow you to see the true me. I will always be honest to you and will give you the truth but it takes a long while to get there. So for everyone stick with me you will see who I am by the end of this.

Who is your fav team? What did you play growing up? What do your kids enjoy playing now?

Cell Phone Bill!

YIKES I went over the mins on accident and I have never done that. Have you ever done that? I was in shock when I got the bill and it was 300 bucks. I had a lot going on this month and we dont have a home phone. So I used my phone not realizing that I went over the minutes. Its ok its something we deal with and move on. Husband has never been one to worry and he just said in his always calm voice just watch it next time. I love that about my husband he is always so kind and never yells. He is the most relaxed guy that I have known. Compared to my dad who is not a horrible person just has a horrible temper I was not used to such the calm ways of my husband. I still have that fear if I do something wrong that I will be yelled at that I get this pit in my stomach. After last night of tell my husband I realized that its ok to make a mistake because he will always be there no matter what. Tell him and then his reaction brought such peace to me and our relationship. Do you have any certain way that you deal with mistakes in your relationship that works? To my Husband you are the best and I love you more than you may know.

My Kids and a Some information about my Blog

So I have a new look. What do you think? I know its not classic but hey I am trying over here. I want you to meet our kids so I am going to add some picture so you can see our kids. I hope you enjoy them =)

The third photo is Lucky he is a spunky 1 year old who gets into everything. He is not scared of a thing. He loves water, cat toys, laying around and getting in the sink. He does not care what anyone thinks and he is stubborn. He also LOVES socks we cant keep them in the baskets. The second is Simbaa he is 6 and he is a loveable guy who is scared of everything. He loves to cuddle, get attention, play and talk to us. The First is Jazmin she is about 3 years old and is very large. She was abused when we got her so she is scared of lots of things but she loves towels, cuddling and talking. She will just talk to you if you talk to her and once she starts she dont stop easy. I love all our kids even though they are a pain sometimes. They are spoiled and are all on special diets because we seem to get the kids with issues. None of our animals have ever been without one issue of another.

I also had a cat Snickers who passes in july of 2007 that I loved so much. He was 3 and died from liver failure. RIP Little man you are missed and Will always be with us.

This blog you will find that I follow many kids who are sick needing transplants, have cancer, have had transplants or have other medical illnesses. I follow their stories and hope for full recovery. At times I will post prayer requests for these kids and If would take a moment to think about them in your day I would appriciate it. Thanks in advance and I hope you enjoy my blog =)

Im Back

I am back to blogging again. I am going to mess with it more and try to get it more custom no promises though. I dont know the ins and outs of the custom stuff yet but hopefully I will learn quick and this wont be so boring!
